GETTING CRAFTY: Changes to the workshop and equipment perks

Phantom Brigade is in Early Access, which means we are actively updating and adding new content based on our roadmap and your wonderful feedback. As we will be skipping July’s update in preparation for the big changes to the pilot system, you can expect the next Tactical Tuesday update on August 16th, 2022 at 11:00AM PST. See the full patch notes below!

New Features

🦾 indicates changes due to community feedback!

  • 🦾 Replay is Here!
    • We’ve added Single Turn replay into battles!
    • You can play back the entire previous turn from start to finish, or you can scrub through the turn and replay from any point during the turn you want.
    • Three different replay modes:
      • Single Replay – Watch the turn back once, and then it stops once it ends.
      • Looping Replay – The replay will jump back to the start and play again once it ends.
      • Mirror Replay – The turn will play in reverse once it ends, and forwards once it reaches the start again.


  • Bug Reporter
    • We have changed the key command to open/close the bug reporter to Alt+B
    • Shift+Tab will no longer function for this
  • Simplified the Workshop
    • Removed workshop charges, so you only need supplies and any components to build them now.
    • You’ll still need to discover specific projects during your campaign though!
  • 🦾 No more Negative Equipment Perks
    • We have removed negative equipment perks from all equipment in the game. Positive equipment perks are still present.
    • Perk names were also changed in order to be less confusing in some cases.
